Notes:

- Good news for Phil fans, this recording will shake your house, your car, your mind...

Subject: Hot show, good recording, mid-80's hectic energy
I would have loved to be at this show. I never did see any Frost shows, and I heard it was a great place. The energy of the crowd, the day & the band sounds very high.

Many of the 80's shows before my time ('87 on) sound kinda cranked up, with some songs played a bit too fast for my taste. That's true with this show, but not too much. The playing is fantastic--near perfect--and the set list is long and great. They really packed a lot in, and I've never heard a Scarlet>Eyes before.

The recording requires very little EQing, though the vocals are very tinny and that's hard to rectify.

Not one of my absolute faves, but definitely a keeper!
